|Rogerson Notches Another Sprint Invaders Season Opener at 34
(by Bill Wright) April 19, 2008 Matt Rogerson won his fifth career Ideal Ready Mix Sprint Invaders Association Saturday night at the 34 Raceway near West Burlington, Iowa. Entering the night, his four wins at the facility were already tops with the series. Rogerson survived a mid-race duel with John Schulz and pulled away on an extremely heavy surface to claim his third Sprint Invaders tally in the month of April at 34.
After a sixth place showing in the Rich DeReu Memorial Shake-Up Dash, things didnt look good for Rogerson, until winner Bobby Mincer rolled a three on the dice. That put Matt outside row one. It was all about track position tonight the way the track was, said Rogerson. I should thank Bobby Mincer for drawing what he did after the dash. Weve got a few laps around this place.
After a lap one flip by Nick Guernsey, who was uninjured, and a lost wheel by Ryan Jamison on the next try, the third start was a charm, and Rogerson shot out to a lead immediately. Schulz tucked into second, and the lead pair separated from the pack. After a caution on lap six, the remaining 20 laps went non-stop. On lap 16, in lapped traffic, Schulz made a pass for the lead at the flagstand before Rogerson returned the favor and led the rest of the way. I was trying to get around a lapped car and bicycled badly over in turn two, says Rogerson. I had to get off it and counter-steer, and he got by me. Then pretty much the same thing happened to him. From then on I was running well. Everyone knows thats where Matt Rogersons going to end up running anyway, the bottom.
Schulz, who won with the Sprint Invaders here last July, remembered the lead exchange the same way. Matt was a little better in the open track, and I could reel him in in traffic. We both bicycled up with a lapped car and he ended up getting by us again. Ive known him my whole life. It was just a good race. I could make some ground up on top, but you had to watch the lappers sliding up in front of you. You had to just bite the bullet and take what you could get.
Finishing a distant, but solid third, was fourth generation driver, Korey Weyant. It helped us to start up front, he said. Weve got a new motor this year, so that helped a ton. The track was really tacky. We messed up on the setup a bit, we were spiking on the right rear pretty bad. Maybe if it wasnt, we could have been up there with the top two.
2007 Knoxville Raceway 360 Track Champion, Josh Higday was fourth, and Bobby Mincer was fifth. Jon Agan, Jerrod Hull, Josh Schneiderman, hard-charger Jordan Goldesberry and Justin Newberry rounded out the top ten.
Heats went to Weyant, Rogerson, Schulz and Josh Schneiderman. Mincer won the Shake-Up Dash, and Nick Eastin dominated the 12-lap B main event.
The Ideal Ready Mix Sprint Invaders will be back in action on Friday, May 16 at the Morgan County Speedway in Jacksonville, Illinois.
